Tim Cheesebrow & Jeromy Darling

For more than 15 years, experienced singer/songwriter Tim Cheesebrow has entertained audiences across Minnesota. His polished music has been described as a “hopeful and heartfelt celebration of life on Earth” with a liberal dose of “Great Lakes heart.” His melodies are simple, catchy and artfully crafted.  His lyrics are a mixture of profound and lighthearted messages but always thoughtful and detailed.

Folk-roots inspired acoustic music is truly at the core of Tim’s being. Whether playing an old favorite or showcasing his latest tune, Tim delivers a fine performance that demonstrates his passion for making music. His love of music extends to teaching, writing,and recording in a variety of genres from classical to country, bluegrass to hard rock. His expertise and eye for creativity has afforded him the completion of two full-length solo albums and his latest release, ‘Home in the Heartland’ is a songwriters’ playground, with a little something for everyone to enjoy.

"Just a pile of dirt and memories".

This line, gently lifted from Jeromy's as-yet-to-be-recorded autobiographical song "The Mississippi", deftly depicts his childhood home - a trailer park in Ames, IA - demolished years ago to pave way for new condominiums. Only fond memories fill the otherwise dreary surroundings of his childhood: feral cats, violent neighbors and a makeshift junkyard the kids used as a playground. Too young to understand poverty, but old enough to understand love, Jeromy would find safety and solace in the arms of his parents, Mark and Kathy Darling. Fast forward some 25 years and things are much different: he's celebrating over 12 years of marriage to his high school sweetheart Gretchen and they're relishing the wonderful little gifts that their sons Wyatt (born Oct. '09) and Wilder ( July '12) continue to pour into their lives.
